I have been looking into purchasing a 36 inch gear drive walk behind. I am still determining if I need a fixed deck or a floating deck since I am only a residential user. Next week I plan on demoing a Metro 36inch to determine if it scalps my yard. My question is this, what are main advantages/disadvantages between Exmark's walk behinds and Toro's walk behinds gear drive units? I know Toro owns Exmark, so are the differences great?
